You can worship idols.
But a puppet do the talk instead of you and lift you up and makes you an idol in comparison.
If you are presenting yourself as a good and competent leader, as an idol, you can recruit qualified people as workers that are good puppets in two ways. First they show people how good people you have around you. Simply and only the best are allowed to come near you, grear leader. You only choose the best. When you as a good and comptent leader make the workers fail in droves because of your ungood and incompetent descisions you get people outside to look at the puppets instead of you. When puppets of high competence fail and is shown to be not enough, as good enough and competent enough as you, the great leader. You will become an idol ready for worship. You, great leader, really wants the best for us, you make me, regular joe, feel good when you tear down scholars and laureates and show them as inflated ego-balloons.
